When searching for an IT solutions / Cloud Provider (CSP) it is important to verify that they have the necessary compliance and accreditations. There may be several regulations such as the GDPR, DPA and others that are uniquely governing your business / organistation’s sector.
Venom understands that many of these regulations can be complied with through an IT solutions provider rather than directly with your business. Many of our solutions remove several regulatory burden from your business leaving you to carry on with other pressing matters. Venom has invested heavily over the years to make sure our IT solutions comply with all the essential laws and regulations.
The laws and regulations frequently change and evolve over time and Venom keeps on top of these changes. This means you can rest assured that your data will remain compliant, safe and secure. To help us achieve this goal we have ISO 27001, ISO 27017, 27018 and ISO 9001 accreditations and we are a certified G-Cloud 12 provider.
ISO 9001 is the international certification of quality assurance. It lists several organisational systems and practical measures that need to be in place, and an annual audit by an external certification body is required.
ISO 27001 is the international standard for information security management. It lists 118 procedures and controls that need to be in place and adhered to. It is annually audited by an external certification body. Some companies comply with as few as 50/118 controls, but Venom IT scores 116/118 – due to not having loading bays, and not having secured areas such as clean rooms.
Cyber Essentials is a UK standard for basic information security management. It lists numerous controls to ensure that firewalls, system configurations, access control, malware protection and patches & updates are in place, up-to-date and correctly configured. Under the new IASME certification scheme, there is now an additional control set for GDPR compliance.
ISO 27017 is the International Code of practice for Cloud Providers and lists additional controls that are added to the existing ISO 27001 controls. GDPR makes specific mention of ‘codes of conduct’ as ‘an element by which to demonstrate compliance’. This provides assurance that Venom IT stores and handles data according to industry best practice.
ISO 27018 is the International Code of practice for Data Privacy and lists 25 additional controls that are added to the existing ISO 27001 controls. GDPR makes specific mention of ‘codes of conduct’ as ‘an element by which to demonstrate compliance’. This provides assurance that all personal data is handled correctly, in line with industry best practice, and in line with GDPR principles.
G-Cloud 12 is a framework that effectively provides pre-approval for government tenders relating to Cloud Services. Venom IT is specifically approved for Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software and Cloud Support.
NHS Data Security & Protection Toolkit provides approval for processing NHS data.

“Venom IT undertook a full upgrade of our IT and phone infrastructure in 2019 and 2020. The work included, amongst other things, new network cabling, the installation of new computer hardware and the migration of our phone system to VOIP. In conjunction with this, Venom IT also upgraded our email system, greatly increased our internet upload and download speeds and introduced much more robust security measures including cloud storage. It was a huge help that Venom IT were able to coordinate all of this work. All of the changes took place while our office remained operational, which was a logistical challenge at times. Despite this, the team at Venom IT did a fantastic job, delivering the projects on time and to budget, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Venom IT to others about to embark on a similar work.”
